[Tagging] How to map Irish pubs?

Hi there fellow OSMers,

What's the best way to tag an Irish pub? Not just a pub in Ireland, but
a specifically themed "Irish Pub" (which are usually outside Ireland)?

There's ~300 instances of `cuisine=irish`, which would make total sense
for places which (also) serve food. Traditionally pubs in Ireland would
rarely serve food. Calling Tayto's “cuisine” is a stretch, and using the
`cuisine` tag seems weird for a bar/pub that doesn't serve any food.

I've used `theme=irish` once or twice. But I don't think anyone else
does, and it's not supported. This might be related to mapping “sports
bars” or other themed bars. In theory the `theme` of a restaurant/bar
could be different from the `cuisine` of any food/drink it serves, so it
might make sense to tag this difference.
